The zBox4 is the latest upgrade to the famous zBox supercomputer. Located in the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, the zBox features a custom rack design that houses 3,072 2.2GHz Intel Xeon cores and over 12TB of RAM. Each node is connected to a high speed Infiniband network, that enables researchers to perform cutting edge parallel N-body simulations of galaxy, star, and planet formation. The GHalo simulation featured in this video has over 3 billion particles and models the formation of a dark matter halo similar to that containing our own Milky Way galaxy.
